‘Terra incognita’—this term was first used by Ptolemy, and refers to uncharted territory. At that time, these unknown lands were thought to be inhabited by dragons, monsters and other mythological creatures. This project, under the Queen Victoria Gardens’ majestic treeline, will explore first encounters with these lands, engaging the idea of the Other as something to be embraced rather than feared.
We’re excited to play host, for this performance, to local experimental-psych duo iceclaw, which features Nick Lane of This Is Your Captain Speaking and John Koutsogiannis (aka duckjuggler). Terra Incognita will utilise improvised sound and psychedelic lighting and set design to generate a visuo-musical map of the unexplored terrain its title refers to. We hope you can join us in taking the plunge!
